Clinical experience

I am a specialist colorectal surgeon, diagnosing and treating patients with diseases of the large bowel (colon, rectum & anus).    I have a special interest in treating cancer of the large bowel, diseases of the anus such as haemorrhoids, fissures and fistulae as well as functional disorders of defaecation.   I perform both diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy.   I introduced sacral nerve modulation to the Trust and was instrumental in establishing the pelvic floor service


Management experience

I lead the colorectal cancer service, one of the biggest in the UK.   I am a member of the Court of Examiners and the Invited Review Mechanism of the Royal College of Surgeon's. I chair the independent health committee of the Association of Coloproctology and sit on council.   I have recently been appointed Chair of the National Clinical Reference Group for Specialised Colorectal Services.


Research experience

I supervise a trainee surgeon who is in our research post and have been senior author on a number of scientific abstracts and papers.   I peer reviewed original articles for Cancer and Colorectal Disease as well as applications to various grant giving bodies.
